*Annual Percentage Yield (APY) accurate as of 9/2/21. Qualifications, limits and other requirements apply. See financial institution for details. If qualifications are met each monthly qualification cycle: (1) **Nationwide ATM fees incurred during qualification cycle will be reimbursed up to $25 and credited to account on the last day of monthly statement cycle; (2) balances up to $25,000 receive APY of 0.50%, and (3) balances above $25,000 earn 0.15% interest rate on portion of balance over $25,000, resulting in 0.50% - 0.24% APY depending on the balance (the 0.24% APY is based on a $100,000 balance.)

Qualifying transactions must post and settle during the monthly qualification cycle.

ATM withdrawals do not count as qualifying debit card purchase transactions for purposes of earning rewards within this account. Please note that transactions MUST post and settle to your account during the monthly qualification cycle. They may not be in a pending state to qualify as one of the qualifications. Transactions may take one or more banking days from the date the transaction was made to post to and settle an account. Available to personal use accounts only.
